That most reputable of tabloids, The Sun recently published an article about Angelina Jolie’s relationship with the CIA, based almost entirely on an interview with yours truly. No doubt, this is good PR but I am mildly confounded – I gave the interview to a journalist named Alex Diaz, but for some reason the Sun’s article is attributed to someone else. Likewise, they came to me wanting to explore the hypothesis that Jolie is some sort of unofficial PR asset for the CIA, yet the article attributes the theory entirely to me.
Another day, another bizarre case of tangled journalism. Nonetheless, I am glad they chose to cover this topic and cite me as an expert. I just hope they don’t hack my phone.
